This document is a guidance tool to help prioritize natural resource management actions and highlight healthy watersheds throughout the State Park System (SPS). The purpose of this report is to provide California State Park managers with important information when making natural resource management and acquisition decisions. The report identifies representative watersheds and aquatic systems that embody the special characteristics of the state’s ecological regions. By designating these watersheds and aquatic systems, managers can work toward strategic coverage and treatments throughout the SPS as well as contribute to the statewide effort of other land-managing state agencies to develop priority areas for collaboration on restoration, acquisition, and conservation actions.
